Panini Peek: 2012-13 Certified Hockey
Boasting a bevy of new bells and whistles, Panini America’s 2012-13 Certified Hockey will arrive in November packing four memorabilia or autograph cards in every box (with at least one autograph guaranteed), a returning rainbow array of Mirror parallels, coveted Freshman Fabric autograph memorabilia RCs, and the all-new Goalie Pulls and Face Off Dual Sticks inserts.
The myriad refinements should be well received by those passionate hockey collectors patiently waiting for the third Certified release in Panini America’s NHL history.
2012-13 Certified Hockey includes a 100-card base set that is bolstered by 20 Masked Marvels, 20 Immortals and 60 Rookie Cards broken into three different subsets (15 Certified Rookies, 25 Freshman Signature Rookies and 20 Freshman Fabrics Signature Rookies).
The packout configuration includes 10 five-card packs per box and 24 boxes per case; those 24 boxes will be broken into three eight-box mini cases. In addition to the aforementioned four memorabilia or autograph cards per box, collectors will also find one Mirror parallel and three additional inserts or parallels.
Hot Boxes will fall one per mini-case; Freshman Fabrics Signature Rookies will fall two per mini case.
Other highlights of 2012-13 Certified Hockey include:
- Mirror Red, Blue, Gold, Emerald and Black parallels
- The all-new Goalie Pulls inserts allow you to make the call on leaving the goalie in the card or

- Relive the postseason with the Path to the Cup insert set highlighting each game of the 2011-12 NHL Playoffs
